Open Campus Programs

All in-person and on-campus are suspended until further notice.

Based on COVID-19 recommendations from the CDC, the College has suspended all in-person and on-campus events until further notice. You can register for live and recorded online webinars to learn more about Wellesley. Registration for online information sessions, interviews, tours, and virtual fairs is forthcoming.

As the College continues to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19, we regretfully cannot confirm the dates of our fall open campus program, Discover Wellesley Weekend. We will be sure to send you information as it becomes available and provide updates as we solidify our plan.
